The Ballets Russes: Celebrating the Centennial at the Wadsworth Atheneum. This was a study by Alexandre Benois for a costume for the role of Les Deux Mandarins Rouges from the ballet Le Rossignol. It's a great museum. You should go. And you should take my parents. For two reasons: first, they are really smart and know a TON about art. Second, here are some excerpts of some texts I sent to Noesha on the ride home:
3:20pm: We're speeding at 55mph...speed limit? 65.
3:26: i am currently listening to chatenooga choo choo on tape. AND, tho it isn't raining,
the windsheild wipers are on and scraping.
3:27 and did i mention...only anoth 1.5 hours to go
3:31 i'm considering walking home. its only 90 more miles.
3:33 alert alert alert...my dad decided to experiment...driving w/o his glasses. imagine in your min'd ear the supersonic screetch of "R put those back on"
Oh yes, you should go to the Wadsworth Atheneum with my parents.
